Has anyone been able to figure out how to enable Night Shift mode on hackintosh? I am running iMac 14,2 and thought that the feature would be available but I do not see it in Display settings. I found a page on pikeralpha's website and modified the CoreBrightness binary but it does not seem to work. Anyone else had success with this?

I use iMac15,1 (even though I have an older processor, i5-3570K) and I have the night shift mode in display options. Didn't have to do anything after the update.
You should try 15,1 too, it matches your specs anyway. (imac15,1 models have 4590 / 4690 / 4790K cpu)

Use iMac 14,2. Night Shift works on iMac 14,1 also.

No luck with either 14,2 or 15,1. My monitor might not support it.

Most likely you haven't patched ACPI hence why it doesn't work.
